HELP 4 HOMELESS VETERANS Charity number 1148155 like everyone else this date two years ago was affected by the Lockdown.
That very same day our first Covid related homeless veteran asked for help. Ex RAF steward working as a waiter in a Channel Island Hotel not only lost his job but his tied accommodation.
H4HV paid to get him back to Leeds, paid his accommodation and gave him some cash to help him get re-established here in Yorkshire.
This is what he said at that time:
I just wanted to write a quick email to say thankyou for all the help you have given me over the last week including getting me off Jersey when I lost my job and accommodation due to the corona virus crisis, hotel and hostel accommodation, train fares, and first months rent. It is very much appreciated and when all this is over I will look at doing some fund raising for you.
I remember thinking at the time, this is going to be awful for lots of people. Well two years on our charity has assisted more than180 more homeless veterans, including this same guy again later on.
Like many key workers our charity has not stopped operating once during the pandemic. We continue reacting rapidly to requests for help including 2 more in the past 36 hours.
We can only maintain this level of help with YOUR support. Please remember us when you are choosing who to donate your hard earned cash to. Thank you.
